Republican Lee Zeldin fought hard in the race for governor of New York, but conceded to Governor Kathy Hochul.
In a tweet shared by Zeldin just before 2 p.m. on Wednesday he shared that he was congratulating Hochul for winning her first full term as governor.
“If not for the dedicated, hard work of grassroots volunteers & supporters this incredibly close race wouldn’t have been possible,” Zeldin tweeted, according to WENY News.
The race was close, but Hochul came out on top, declaring her victory Tuesday night.
“Those controlling Albany should take note. New Yorkers of all walks of life are sick of attacks on their wallets, their safety, their freedoms and the quality of their kids’ education and are hitting the breaking point,” Zeldin said in his concession announcement.
